Jonathan’s Agric Revolution A Big Scam – Gov Oshiomhole by justirich(m): 1:29pm On Aug 16, 2015
Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has
described the gains of the immediate past
administration of President Goodluck Jonathan in
the agricultural sector as a big scam that was
used to fool Nigerians.
According to him, the much hyped agricultural
revolution of President Jonathan, was a big scam
as the nation is import dependent on rice and
other foods.
Specifically, the governor accused the past
government of fritting away over N800billion on
waivers for rice millers and others at the detriment
of local rice producers, most of who have since
gone bankrupt.
“The agriculture revolution was one of the
advertised achievements of President Goodluck
Jonathan but we have since realised that it was
purely a scam on us. It is also a policy
contradiction where a government will give
waivers and support importers to import what can
be produced locally putting its own people out of
business while enriching other nations. Local
manufacturers that produce locally are punished.”

Expatiating, he said: “Unfortunately for us, rice
millers imported rice without even paying duties,
as a nation we should not be seen to be importing
what is locally produced. Where then is the
success story in the sector? Agriculture is not
about bow-ties and designer suits but hard facts
that cannot be uncontroverted.”
He urged the immediate prohibition of food
imports noting that if it’s achieved, food prices will
only go up immediately but will stabilise and be
attractive enough for young Nigerians to go into
farming.

but the guy is so on point : advertising the agricultural ministry as making Nigeria rice independent on one hand, while on the hand giving government cronies a free reign of bringing in rice with complete waivers makes absolutely no sense. THE AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION WAS INDEED A SCAM.

THERE IS NO OTHER EXPLANATION; if there was indeed so much improvement in rice production by local farmers, hoe would they be able to sell with so much influx of rice without any duties being paid on then

The question is why grant waivers and yet price of rice was high. Rice importers should pay duties in order to encourage local fatmers.

It seems the world bank loan which was used to pay his dowry to Lara is not enough for this callous slanderer. The waivers program was a short term initiative done until the local industry would be able to compete with its foreign competitors. Has the govenor ever eaten abakaliki rice before. It's not yet at the standard that we Nigerians are accustomed to. GEJ knowing how Nigerians react to a policy that is tasking and long-term in nature, decided to carry out the policy in stop gap phases. No one can say the agricultural policies were not felt by the nation. If they were fictitious like he claims, then why is the former minister now the head of the African Development Bank. At the end of APC's four years, let's see if any of their future Ministers from Mars will be recognised globally

Import waiver for Rice importers? Are you serious?? The waiver was supposed to be for those importing equipment to produce locally, not for food importers

Would you have been okay with switching all of a sudden to rice not up to the standard you grew up with. Do you know there has been a huge improvement with the standard of rice in the past 6years. Governance is not as straightforward as you think

It obvious you don't even get the crux of the matter; the waivers are illegal. it was given to some set of people as gift for them to make a lot money , it was not a general thing .

Rice has always been imported big time since the OBJ days, from the Vaswani brothers to the Dangotes, they didn't need import waivers at all. The import waivers were meant to encourage local production, not encourage importation of food. Under the same import waivers, petrol importers were getting waivers also, all of which cost us $20 billion dollars loss of revenue initiated through the NIPC alone, talk less of others we don't know. In fact we got wind of this one because Okonjo Iweala frowned at the NIPC about the massive fraud and someone got the memo leaked and got sacked by GEJ. It's crazy man, they have ripped your country into pieces while they're using sentiments to divide and rule you. Never again man! Let the "one" Fulani man whom I know has the balls to get back at them do the needful, I don't care!

You are willingly allowing yourself to be led astray, but not to worry most people Nigeria has labelled and tagged as either scammers or corrupt have found relevant international agencies willing to work with them. Adesina is with African Agric development Bank, find a worthy person for replace him. Oshiomhole should just stop his character assassination stunts, it's not working.

Allegations, Allegations, Allegations that's all I hear from the APC. You all seem to run only on conspiracy theories. If these was partly true, you think the ex-minister would have been shortlisted not to talk of being picked for the ADB job.
And another thing, not everyone is like you. I support the PDP and especially the last regime simply because they are innovative and know how damaging a government prone economy will be in a fast paced global market. I will not join the bandwagon to support a man who in his last two stints in government failed to understand the need for protocol, procedures and innovative intelligence in tackling issues

you're free to support anyone you want, i supported GEJ's government too till it became obvious his government was irredeemable, it has been stated severally that GEJ lost election due to impunity and corruption, he had good programs and innovation, but corruption and impunity killed them all, Nigeria was headed for destruction under him. Meanwhile what i wrote earlier had nothing to do with the ex-minister of agriculture. i'm talking about importation here and agric happened to be among the products fraudulently added to the list
